*Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network has dropped a preview of its newest primetime series, “It’s Not You, It’s Men,” featuring Tyrese Gibson and Rev Run, bringing viewers their insight on everything from men and love to relationships and marriage.
The series is based on their New York Times bestselling book, titled “Manology: Secrets of a Man’s Mind Revealed,” in which Gibson and Rev Run present a bold, honest, and uncensored look into the male mind.
According to the book’s overview: “Manology is a guide to regaining your relationship confidence and weeding out the cheaters, MANipulators, and pimps from the good men. Just follow Tyrese and Rev’s advice and finally understand the reasons behind your man’s actions.”
Per the press release…
Friends for over seven years, Tyrese and Rev Run pride themselves on their varying points of view when it comes to relationships and marriage. Tyrese is a single father in search of his dream woman and Rev Run has been happily married for more than 20 years and is a father of six. Their ideas and opinions on love and commitment often clash, demonstrating the unique chemistry the longtime friends share, and resulting in passionate conversation and humorous banter.
Each week, the series will feature celebrity guests, including Vin Diesel, Rev Run’s wife Justine Simmons, Jordin Sparks, Marlon Wayans, Iyanla Vanzant, and more.
“When Rev Run, Tyrese and CBS came to us with the idea of a primetime series we were energized by the chance to bring OWN viewers something fresh and entertainingly real in the ‘love space,’” said Sheri Salata, president of OWN. “We can’t wait to turn them loose — enlightening us all about what makes men tick.”
“Combining the enormous popularity of Tyrese and Rev Run with engaging topics like love and relationships will make a very entertaining hour for viewers,” said Scott Koondel, executive vice president and chief licensing officer for CBS Corp..
“It’s Not You, It’s Men” premieres January 23 at 9 p.m. on OWN.
